Just got word

from the National Park service that the snake we saw in Cuyahoga Valley National Park (see my post Sunday with the men in my life ) is not a Copperbelly Water snake like we thought.  Instead it is a Northern Water Snake.  The Lake Erie subspecies of this snake has just come off the Endangered Species list last year.

Thanks to the park ranger and biologist in helping us properly identify the snake.
